When I asked for the quote it was for a colour change to black or mica blue.

A good paint job is all about time and preperation and not rushing what your doing.
How long does a job like this take?

Re: complete respray

My demo car is been done between jobs so a while lol, paying customers i would like the car for at least a month maybe more. Rush repairs etc and job will look poor, time is important, anybody who wants a rush job can choose another painter. I wont rush a job.

Re: complete respray

I've been thinking about the way I want my scooby to look, I was going to put Subaru swoosh logos on but now since its going to be black Im thinking Heavy Metal type look.

Windows and rear lights tinted black (I think at this point its know as murdered out on SN), flaming skulls across the doors, grim reaper on the boot and if and its a big if I can get permission from Megadeth im putting their Mascot Vic Rattlehead on the bonnet like the one from the remastered album Killing Is My Business...Business Is Good but more realistic looking like this http://features.cgsociety.org/newgal...0317_large.jpg

Found a really good website for car and bike vinyls its www.rockartiststudios.co.uk

Looking forward to your comments good or bad

Love it or hate it feel free to comment.
I think it looks bad @ss and its as far away from rally stickers as I could get.
